Dadi Rwabireka currently imprisoned at Huye reveals that prison is a school, he has spent 19 years in prison .He was jailed without any profession skill ,however he says that he learnt art craft that will enable him for both himself, his family sustaining and entire country development at large.
He reiterates that he is very happy about the professional he learnt from the prison particularly art craft ‘’When I was imprisoned here, I didn’t know how to make this ,but by passion, I learnt drawing ,sculpture ,I learnt painting, now I’m striving to have my products on the market so that upon the end of my sentence I continue my activities ,since it’s now my carrier, said “. Rwabireka says that it occupies him while serving his sentence, he therefore realized that a prison is more of a school than prison because they teach various professional skills.
Apart from art, inmates of HUYE prison are given choice to learn other vocational skills such as construction, carpentry, sewing, wilding, soap making, mechanics, agriculture and others. While in prison inmates, are trained through various programs among others, civic education, fighting crime, reading and writing, languages, this also benefits school dropouts.
Deputy commissioner general revealed that the government of Rwanda gives value to inmates ,she had this to say :”It’s the government decision that prisoners should live with dignity and human as we believe that when a person acts contrary to the normal human being attitudes in the country that is governed by the rule of law, after criminal action and punished by the law, the next step is to correct him for better citizen when released from prison.
Huye prison accommodates 9216 men prisoners as women were relocated to Nyamagabe prison which specifically accommodates female prisoners.
